I suspect that this are recording from radio programme THE BIG BROADCAST of Rich Conaty (BB in the names confirm the things).

I came here for some damn good music today gentlemen, what I found was horrifying. How can you claim to make a file with "good" music in it, when its so outdated, not even containing hits from last year, like the famous "Wrecking Ball", or even early 2000 hits like Madagascar's hit, "I Like To Move It". I am seriously disapointed and considering reporting you to the FDA, which my dad works for, and is very very important. So if you don't want this shityy site, which provies "good" music, then you better clean up you act.

Big Daddy Is Coming, you beter hide.

Subject: Rights?
This is a great collection! But as some have pointed out, the dates provided may not be wholly accurate.

I want to use a few of these tunes in a film - would the poster provide any info regarding the rights for these recordings? Are they in the Public Domain?

Thanks!!

Reverb accents a poor transfer idea. NO LIES?

Subject: Great Music
Who cares what date these songs were recorded? They are all great. If you don't like what you hear, go off into the wind and listen to Lady Gaga.

Subject: Wow!
These recordings are amazing. I for one don't really stress out over the accuracy of the recording dates. Heck, just kick back and enjoy the music. This stuff is priceless...

Subject: WOW All these smart guys
Such experts. All the content on this page is from a long running radio program broadcast on WFUV, Fordham University, New York MC'd by Rich Conaty for over 30 years. The music is authentic 20's 30's (with a few rare exceptions)music first recorded on 78 RPM records or cylinder. If you take the time to listen you'll find that Conaty gives the recording date and other tid-bits of information about the song. The program is named the BIG BROADCAST hence the BB in the identity. The rest of the numbers are the broadcast date. Experts please take the time to listen before you share your ignorance.

Subject: I second what PD said.
PD's review is right on target. All I can do is endorse his observations.
Reviewer: NoSpillBlood - - January 21, 2012
Subject: Agree with first commentator
Look, there's some great stuff here. But most of it isn't correctly identified as to date.

Why stick "1920" on stuff that ranges to the 1940s? Somebody needs to do some homework before tossing up their torrent finds on here.
Reviewer: PDGazette - - January 14, 2012
Subject: Not from the 20's
The name of this collection is a misnomer, imo. These sound more like remakes of 20's-style music. Vocal style sounds suspiciously modern; take a listen to the genuine 78's of Ruth Etting and Nora Bayes for comparison. Also, one has Bing Crosby from at least the late 1940's promoting 'Holiday Inn'! Bing's 20's work includes recordings with Paul Whiteman and The Rhythm Boys, not this stuff.

Btw, what is the history of these recordings? There's nothing on here giving artists' names, song titles, when recorded, etc
